Producer:

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Very ripe damson nose, but rather closed. Rich, ripe, almost sweet, more New World than Rhone, with a good dose of alcohol too. There’s ample fruit and concentration, but it’s also rather obvious. Nonetheless, a very enjoyable wine, with lavish fruit and quite good length.

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

The nose is powerful with notes of jasmine, late-season roses and hints of bacon-rind. The palate does not let up, a hint of over-extraction evidenced, but both the balancing acidity and the peppery finish act as pleasing foils to the ripe fruit character.

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Has a floral air, almost like Cote-Rotie, violet in with a red plum fruit aroma. A baked note of latent ripeness, tea and power hovers. The palate is muscular, broad, very grounded, bringing in prune, north African fruits.The tannins are searching, and this coats the palate with its ripe force – there is no holding back.
